While the most eagerly awaited next Samsung tablets are the still unannounced Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 tablets, two additional Samsung tablets have showed up too now.
Neither of these have been announced either, so we’re going to have to go by leaks and rumors to try and figure out what tablets these are.
They have both been benchmarked once on Geekbench, where a Samsung SM-X516B and Samsung SM-X616B were both benchmarked with Android 13, a 2.4 GHz octa-core Samsung Exynos 1380 processor with 5G, and 6GB and 8GB RAM respectively.
The benchmarks were up to 991 in single core and up to 2410 in multi core in Geekbench 6.
Based on the model names, Sammobile suggests that these two tablets could be two different variations of Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE, perhaps a smaller and a larger one.
If these tablets really are two Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE editions, then that opens up the question about the rumored Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE too, which showed up in benchmarks during September last year, but haven’t come to fruition yet.
All the Samsung tablets that are sold today are upgradeable to Android 13 though, so that’s probably one reason why Samsung haven’t been in such a hurry to release new tablets lately.
